Walking canes allow users to maintain mobility, stability, and independence while moving. Walking canes are useful for those who need more support in one leg, foot, or knee allowing you to shift your weight to the other foot which helps to avoid straining other parts of your body such as your back or arms. Canes can provide support while you are either standing or walking which will allow you to not tire out so quickly. They also improve balance while in use to help prevent falls and injury. However, some people also use canes for assistance after surgery or when they have sustained an injury.
GRIT offers Ergoactive Walking Canes. Providing you with unparalleled support and comfort, Ergoactive canes are made differently than most traditional canes. These canes are designed with you and your health care needs in mind.
